Speaking to ITV News from the family home in Coulsdon in south London, Meredith Kercher's sister Stephanie said:
We welcome the news in the sense that we hope to find the answers. We are never going to be happy about any outcome because we have still lost Meredith but we obviously support the decision and hope to get answers from it.
There are still so many unanswered questions, all we have ever wanted to do is do what we can for Meredith and to find out the truth of what happened that night.
Rudy Guede's conviction was on the basis that there was more than one person there so that is something that needs to be looked into.
